5 stars Best Rush album since Power Windows. There's just this energy going on that I haven't felt in such a long time. and its unlike any Rush album to ever come before it.

1. Caravan- Still really good and solid.

2. BU2B- IMO this an example of why its bad to have too much time on your hands, because the newly added intro just feels unnecessary. The momentum of Caravan is lost a little bit by going into the intro rather then strait into the original version of the song.

3. Clockwork Angel- Very cool song with a lot of different things going on.

4. The Anarchist- solid song which I need to listen to more.

5. Carnies- This song is so incredibly badass. I found myself headbanging to it. Incredible.

6. Halo Effect- Really like this song a lot, but need to listen to it more.

7. Seven Cities of Gold- Just a great solid song with a very cool riff

8. The Wreckers- Very cool and uplifting song and very smooth as well.

9. Headlong Flight- My favorite on the album and still just as amazing as when I first heard it.

10. BU2B2- I have deleted this track. Its just doesn't do anything for me, and its the only part of the album that I just don't really like. If it would have connected to the next song, then I probably wouldn't have a problem with it, but its like they just randomly dropped it onto the album with no context.

11. Wish Them Well- Half good and half bad. Hearing "wish them well" over and over again gets kind of old, but the guitar parts are pretty sweet. This should have been a solid song. Its like the song is saying that the album is winding down.

12. The Garden- Incredibly beautiful song, it almost brought a tear to my eye. I haven't loved an ending song like this since Mystic Rhythms. This track brought me to tears this morning. Any album that can bring tears to my eyes automatically gets 5 stars, period.

In short, I think I love this album.

At the end of the day, for a band (almost in their 60's) and after almost 40 years of activity to create an album this damn good solidifies Rush as the greatest band in the world in my eyes.
